Webstorm indexing takes forever with latest update

Updating to the latest version every time I switch to a new branch it reindexes and takes 15 - 20 minutes to reindex during which time the UI is completed frozen is unresponsive. This happens even when only one file has changed a tiny bit.

It's making WS pretty unusable. I've tried throwing preferences away, deleting caches etc. but nothing seems to work.

 

I work pretty much exclusively with Meteor projects

Does re-indexing only occurs on switching branches, or on any change made to a file?

It would appear to only happen when switching branches.

Re-indexing on switching branches is the expected behavior. But it shouldn't normally take that long. How big is your project? Do you have any symlinks in the project path?

No symlinks in path. The project is pretty big but indexing previous used to take maybe 15-30 second rather than 15-30 minutes. Also during indexing there is no indicator that it's indexing and the UI is completely locked.

 

I just upgraded to the current version, cleaned my caches and back at this same problem again. This is getting really frustrating.

Please try taking CPU snapshots whilr indexing (https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/hc/en-us/articles/207241235-Reporting-performance-problems) and provide them along with your log directory conntent (thread dumps, idea.log.* files)
